I already had a web site before I started full time RVing in 2001. At that time with a new focus in my life, I wanted a domain name that reflected the planned nomadic wandering. With various spellings and misspellings of "wandering" already taken, I registered www.wandrin.us. Over the past 12 years, stories of my life started as a monthly column. As blogging software became available, I had blogging software attached to the www.wandrin.us domain name. After further maturing of blogging software I went with the internet elephant -- Google -- and continued the "wandrin" theme in www.wandrinlloyd.blogspot.com.
Now that I have made a settled existence in Tucson, "wandrin" is no longer my life. Even though I am living a settled existence, I have not died. I will continue to share my life in words.
I had been mulling a blogspot name change, but what would that new name be. After more thoughts, there really is no reason to change things. The URL is nothing more than an address to my site on the net.
When I was traveling, I wrote frequently. With my settled existence of less than a month I have already proven that I don't have a lot to write about. Some of the lack of posts is a result of spending time getting settled in the new digs and sorting through stuff that had not seen light in years.
Now that I am mostly settled, it is time to do some Tucson exploring -- a local wandering. The hikes will continue, but those experiences will only be shared if I was accosted by a cactus or rattlesnake.
My blog posts always have been a diverse collection of stories, memories and experiences. No change there. The only blog change is that the point of view is a settled existence in Tucson.
